Re: disable built in sound card

after disabling the on-board sound in BIOS, don't forget to completely uninstall the windows driver.

Actually it's better to uninstall the Windows drivers first. Directly after uninstalling the drivers, you should disable the onboard audio in the BIOS. If you don't do so, on the next reboot, Windows will find the card again and reinstall it.

depends on the type of sound-chip. and on the age of it. long time ago, when i used on-board-sound, i had to disable it BEFORE uninstalling the driver, otherwise the driver would not remove and cancel de-installation with an error message.
ok, after all, i reformatted because of having a clean installation for my audigy 2 zs
